Gilat clinches Russian government deal

Global-Teleport is deploying a broadband satellite communications network for the Russian Ministry of Education based on Gilat's SkyEdge systems. Initiated by the Russian government, the education project guarantees unlimited Internet access for Russian schools.

 

Since the beginning of the year, Gilat has supplied approximately 3,000 SkyEdge IP VSATs to provide schools in the Siberian, Far East and other remote regions in Russia with two-way broadband Internet access, multimedia applications, video-conferencing and VoIP support for future use.

 

This will enable students in these regions to enjoy an enhanced educational experience through interactive learning programs and other Internet applications.
